able to help him. >> i think it is important to support the president's efforts to bring back the house to the democratic party. this is a key one of those events. >> reporter: now nearby, the first fundraiser event, this group of a couple dozen protested the keystone pipeline project, which could carry oil from canada to the gulf coast states. these people are worried about the global warming. but they're not the only critics. the fundraising has drawn criticism, specifically his endorsement of a super pac, and accepting corporate donations. one nonprofit told them, president obama has sent mixed signals about his commitment to fixing the problem, of money and politics as usual, it doesn't matter the party you're from, it is the people who can afford to be at the table. obama said it is a problem with the system, not the president. >> unfortunately, they let that policy go through. >> would we are better off if there was less money in politics or all campaigns were publicly funded?

the way out to sea. but just 24 minutes after lifting anchor, the ship struck the western most piling of the bridge, causing more than a million in damage. >> he attempted to lift the stern away from the echo tower, but the stern made contact with the bridge about 11:18. >> reporter: today, the state commission weighed whether responsibility for the collision should fall on the san francisco bar pilot, guy kleese, completing the ship. in his statement, they said that he was heading the ship towards the center of the bridge, but after discovering the bridge radar was not working, switched course towards the end of the bridge. audio recordings revealed kleese was not in communication with the ship's captain who was talking on a satellite phone just before the collision. kleese attempted to turn the bridge during the strong current, but instead clipped the bridge, telling the captain, i touched the bridge. today, commissioners voted unanimously to revoke or suspend kleese's license concluding he failed in his duties. >> we maintain a very high standard of professionalism for the pilots and hold them accountable for all the actions. >> reporter: he didn't appear at the hearing, but his attorney said he did his best during extreme conditions. >> the law said he has to act in a reasonable way, as a skilled pilot. and we believe the evidence will show that he did that. >> reporter: the case will now go to trial before a state law judge who will decide whether kleese should lose his license, meanwhile, the coast guard and the national safety board are preparing their own reports on the accident. joe rosato jr., nbc bay area news. >>> well, he was off duty, on vacation, and in hawaii. but a police sprang into action. take a look, this is the honolulu airport, in the corner, you see a woman attacking the security officer when corporal justin rogers realized nobody was helping her. you saw him jump into action, pinning the person down, he raised his hand to say he was a police officer, quickly identified himself to a tsa agent, and handed the woman in cuffs to the agent. >>> and if it really helps, spare the air bay, the air quality management district has looked at falling pollution over the last few years and credits spare the air for some of the success. in tonight's reality check, sam brock looks at the numbers to see if the claim is true. >> good afternoon, the numbers don't lie, in this case, the bay area has made huge strides when it comes to improving the air quality. due to industry regulations, better technology, spare the air or all of the above. that is where it gets tricky when figuring out how to dole out credit. from atop the hills in berkeley, you may not be able to see a difference in bay area air quality, but rest assured the changes are there. >> this is known as elemental carbon, organic carbon. >> reporter: these technical experts have been using fancy gadgets to measure the pollut polluteants in the area for models set up for years. >> we saw a decrease in the peak levels of the concentration in the winter time. we believe it is caused by the decrease in smoke that is emitted from the individuals' fireplaces. >> reporter: as you probably heard, woodburning contributes heavily to pollution in the winter time. this shows that 70% of wintertime pollution comes from wood, the largest single source. but does it stand that cutting wood-burning roughly ten days out of the year will help with the air pollution. >> well, this shows seven peak pollution areas dating back to 2007. and as you can see the big drop on the board takes place from 2000 down to 2003, then things level off for a few years. but around 2008, we start spare the air, and see a modest dip from 2008 to present day, here comes the question. can we credit spare the air for the modest dip? well, here is the problem, maybe, maybe not. >>? the short term, what you can do is ask people not the burn wood on the nights. in the spare the air program, it is well targeted. >> reporter: but what about the long-term? berkeley professor robert harley is an environmental engineer who has been testing since the mid-90s. he says that testing for the carbons have made a major difference in the long-term pollution levels. but when it comes to spare the air, harley can't say for sure. >> it is still helpful, but has much less leverage on the average value of particularate models. >> this brings us back to the question, can a few spare the air days bring down pollution over time? now the data shows the levels fell way before the spare the air existed, but something caused the levels to dip before 2008, so while it is impossible to isolate the exact factors, it is reasonable to conclude that spare the air help adjudicate okay, rain today, but not in the air today. >> everybody is doing great here from the north bay all the way to the south bay. the storms this morning, producing a quarter inch of rain to an inch. through the east, namely throughout the san francisco peninsula, i just checked here. at the airport at sfo, major delays, an hour behind schedule. the good news, if you're waiting in san francisco, flying to any other major airport there is no delays due to weather. so once you get over this delay you should be good to go. even right here in atlanta where they deal with rainfall. yes, managed to find blue

cover through tonight. tomorrow morning, we'll find the moisture at the lower levels, not picking up much again, not a storm coming our way, but green, could see some of the drizzle, we expect off the east bay and the peninsula for tomorrow morning, the cloud cover will clear out the most by the bay, temperatures in the mid-to-upper 60s, coastline, the cloud cover will hang around the most. in the three-day forecast, chance of showers for saturday, sunday, and real quickly, while we have had a few storms most recently, it has not done much for the rainfall in the calendar year, 2013, we are

advantage of the open android operating system, something it could not do with apples ios system. not that apple users will be all that jealous. >> some of the things that they're looking at in facebook home are actually already in ios, for instance, the ability to post the status update from basically anywhere within the operating system. so in some regards, it is android catching up to ios, the difference is, who owns the customer, who owns the user experience. >> reporter: it is a question major tech companies have been asking for a while. and this might be the closest one single

emoryville, the cloud cover, areas of drizzle, tomorrow morning, that is what we'll track, not any type of storm system. but any time you see green, a chance of rain, hit or miss, that is the nature of drizzle, a hard time pinpointing where that may be, but the fact we're seeing it alone here is a good indication we have a little bit. may have to turn on the windshield wipers tomorrow morning. we

east coast that missile and its launch components were transferred in the last few days close enough to strike south korea and japan. this apparent deployment comes along with escalating rhetoric from the north which accuses the u.s. of pushing the region to the brink of war. jim clancy has more from seoul, south carolina. >> reporter: u.s. and south korean military sources are firm. they believe that north korea is planning a test missile firing. speculation in the media suggest suggests it may be a missile developed with russian help by the north koreans and has a range between 3,000 and 4,000 kilometers. that's significant, because it would put not only south korea but japan and usa.s. air and nal bases on guam at risk. but this is more likely a test to provoke pyongyang's foes. here is what victoria newman had to say. when you have a country making the bellicose threats they're making, when you have ally and treaty commitments you have to take it seriously. there is no other choice, she said. so the u.s. already has ships in the region including a radar platform. south korea is said to be moving its own spy ships into the waters off the korean peninsula to monitor

you want people to know about your husband? >> there's been so much about who he was, his career, and what he did in corrections. certainly he had a significant impact and was a leader in his field.

the inmates in his prisons, and even though it appears one of those very prisoners gunned him down, his wife is already searching for forgiveness. >> i've heard tom in our years together so many times talk about victims with whom he's spoken, who describe their entire lives falling apart, their marriages falling apart, health falling apart because of the rage and the lack of forgiveness towards the person who harmed their loved one or took the life of their loved one. conversely, victims with whom he's spoken who simply said i have to let go so i can live my life and that's -- that's what i choose. >> reporter: though it appears her husband's killer was released from prison early due to a clerical error, she vows not to let resentment or hatred dominate her life. >> for the rest of my days i could be angry that someone made a mistake and didn't capture what a judge conveyed verbally. but it won't bring tom back. then my life is lost in that. and my ability to be a good mother to my children. so -- so i choose not to make it a focus. >> reporter: a choice to let the light chase away the darkness. >> there's a scripture talking about when darkness overtakes the godly, light comes
